I have to say, the contrast between these 2 colors showed better on camera than I initially thought, but it’s still NOT color accurate! It looks pink in the video but please believe it is a lavender & a bright almost neon purple, both in the Radiant Orchid color that’s the pantone color of 2014, and very close to the colors of the mani that inspired me – which I’ve included links to pictures below from MTV’s Nail Art Cam gallery. You’ve probably seen Radiant Orchid all over this year, but I found the color is really REALLY hard to capture in pictures.

You can see the Ingrid Nilson’s mani by Steph Stone that inspired me here: http://www.mtv.com/photos/vma-2014-nail-art-cam/1729604/9540644/photo.jhtml#9540737
